Google's Chrome to gag noisy tabs until you click on them

Nuno

Re: Why not make it optional?

All flash content should be enabled ONLY after clicked, as in flashblock. Before that, it shouldn't even be downloaded.

So, I'll keep using flashblock, thank you...

Uber to drivers: You make a ton of dosh for us – but that doesn't make you employees

Nuno

The relation between Uber and their drivers is not much different from the relation between Apple and the developers that sell Apps in the AppStore, and nobody can honestly say that they are Apple's employees...

Distress PIN

a feature that clears the sensitive data if someone forces you to log in, would be very nice to have. Not only for phones... I can see real use for it on Laptop passwords and even more on ATM machines, to change your available balance into a lower predefined amount.

Ubuntu smartphone to go on sale: It'll be harder to get than a new iPhone

Nuno

if we'll be able to connect the phone to a bigger screen and use it as a desktop, it will be very appealing!

Google crashes supposedly secure Aviator browser

Nuno

Re: Doesn't exonerate Google though

If the privacy controls exist, then maybe the right way of making it more private for everyone would be with an extension that could set better defaults and display every one of those controls inside a very easy to get to interface. Problem solved.

instead of forking and staying some versions behind, and inserting vulnerabilities durinng the process...

White LED lies: It's great, but Nobel physics prize-winning great?

Nuno

light vs energy

although I believe in your numbers about the stability of the amount of money spent, I don't think that comes from more light on our houses. You get more efficient lights, you use more energy on computers, tablets, smartphones, etc.

Our energy consumption is not going to fall, that's for sure, but due to new uses, not for brighter lights indoors.

The REAL JUICE behind leaked BlackBerry OS: Android apps to slip in without protection

Nuno

Choice

As a consumer, I would like to buy whatever hardware (cell phone) I like and install whatever OS I choose. Android compatibility would be needed, to tap into the huge number of available apps.

As cell phones close the gap to PCs, in terms of power and usage, I expect to have those same options.

Re: Cookies?

cookies are used to give state to a stateless protocol. Without them you are always a new user reaching the site for the first time ever.

Of course you can avoid using cookies by passing the session variable on the URL, but for the user the consequences, for good and for bad, are the same.
